But in Rhonda's recipe, paprika is also added. And then to further add flavor and deliciousness to the dish, she also adds dumplings! Oh, talk about old fashioned goodness! The only thing I changed about her dumpling recipe is I added an egg and used milk instead of water. I learned that from a good friend, Mrs. Harris from Crosbyton,Texas. Boy did she make good chicken and dumplings! I've lost touch with her, but I wish I could thank her for teaching me how to make dumplings! Another change I made to Rhonda's recipe is that I omitted the carrot. I usually find that when I add carrots to a recipe it ends up tasting like beef stew. Not that it's a bad thing, I just want a little different flavor coming through.
I highly recommend Rhonda's recipe. It opened up a new way to prepare those soup bones, plus it's easy to make and very delicious!
